HC Deb 31 January 1934 vol 285 cc339-40
19 and 20. Mr. ALBERY

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air (1) if he can now state what customs facilities are available at the Gravesend aerodrome;

(2) what aerodromes in this country have full customs facilities for the clearance of aircraft; and what aerodromes or airports have only limited facilities?

The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for AIR (Sir Philip Sassoon)

Facilities for customs clearance of aeroplane traffic are now available at 16 aerodromes in the United Kingdom, though at six of these they are confined to the clearance of passengers and their baggage. Gravesend aerodrome has been added to the list, for both passengers and goods. I am sending my hon. Friend a detailed list. This will show the cases in which prior notice is necessary.
